SATURDAY 14 NOVEMBER 2015, 7.30pm, St Andrew's & St George's West
L'Arcadia – Flaming Rose, Earth's Adornment: Handel's German Arias

Claire Genewein – flute; Martin Jopp – violin; Katie Stephens – cello; Anne Marie Dragosits – harpsichord; Ulrike Hofbauer – soprano

Handel's nine German Arias stand among a very small group of works that he composed in his native language and still rank among some of his best-kept secrets. The pieces offer some of Handel's most joyous and profound music for solo voice. A selection of these arias will be performed alongside music by Pepush, Telemann, Pisendel and CPE Bach – composers that surrounded and influenced Handel.

"...virtuoso skill and exuberant expression" – Neue Zόrcher Zeitung

"Ulrike Hofbauer with her silvery coloratura, grace and great charm" – Das Opernglas
